Donald Trump Panics and Tries to Bury ‘Treason Lite’ Support for Putin on Truth

Whenever Donald Trump posts something that’s politically disastrous on Truth Social, he engages in the same tactics: bury and distract.

Whenever Donald Trump posts something that’s politically disastrous on Truth Social, he engages in the same tactics: bury and distract.

And yesterday’s bombshell comment is no exception.

The former POTUS shocked even his closest supporters on Monday by saying he trusts Russian President Vladimir Putin more than he trusts US officials.

And as soon as the public hammer of disgust fell, the former President began panic posting on Truth, hoping to bury it far enough down to stop the condemnation and speculation. The former POTUS dropped nearly 60 posts on Truth in less than 24 hours.

But it’s not working.


Donald Trump and his Loyalty to Putin? Or is It Just Tough Talk?

On Monday, Donald Trump had the entire internet in a tizzy over a comment he seemed to think people would think was offhand and not that serious.

But it was serious to many.

Trump shared a conspiracy website link claiming, “FBI criminal government gangsters Peter Strzok and Charles McGonigal texts unearthed, Russiagate set up exposed.”

He captioned the post, “Remember in Helsinki when a 3rd rate reporter asked me, essentially, who I trusted more, President Putin of Russia, or our ‘Intelligence’ lowlifes. My instinct at the time was that we had really bad people in the form of James Comey, McCabe (whose wife was being helped out by Crooked Hillary while Crooked was under investigation!), Brennan, Peter Strzok (whose wife is at the SEC) & his lover, Lisa Page. Now add McGonigal & other slime to the list. Who would you choose, Putin or these Misfits?”

Of course, Trump’s friendship and affinity for Putin are well known. However, this level of blatant favoritism has many crying foul – and accusing him of borderline treasonous talk. While the average citizen might besmirch government officials and talk favorably of other leaders, it carries different weight when a former and future hopeful POTUS does the same.

Especially when speaking in favor of a violent demagogue who recently invaded a sovereign nation, leading to the horrifying deaths of tens of thousands of troops and innocent people.

The question as to whether it was malicious or tough talk is one many people have debated hotly over the past 24 hours.

Trump is known to shoot from the hip when it comes to big sweeping statements such as this, but it’s also indicative of his state of mind: Trump genuinely believes the US government is out to get him, and he sees Putin as a friend.

Trump seemed to realize his mistake pretty quickly and began burying the comment under dozens of reposts.

The posts include bizarre images of the former POTUS stylized as a military leader striding alongside a lion, claims that 80,000,000 people watched his weekend campaign rallies, and insults for Stormy Daniels, calling her “horseface” and denying that he ever had an affair with her.

Is Donald Trump and his Friendship with Putin a Problem?

But ultimately, the focus remained on Donald Trump and his comments about Putin.

With Trump hot on the trail for 2024 and hoping for another tenure in the White House, is his friendship with Putin a liability or an asset?

Donald Trump has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he would be able to end the Russian invasion in less than 24 hours. He has also said in the past that the invasion never would have happened if Trump was still President, although what he thinks he would have done differently is unclear.

Nonetheless, it begs the question about whether or not voters should worry about his seeming loyalty to the violent dictator at the head of a powerful non-ally to the US.

After all, Trump’s first term in office was plagued by accusations of colluding with Russia to win the Presidency, and of inappropriate ties to Russia and – more specifically – Putin.

The former President’s comments yesterday have many people worried, with some taking to Twitter to air their concerns.

Belgian politician Guy Verhofstadt wrote, “A re-elected Trump promises to bow to Putin within 24 hours…

He is as much an enemy of freedom as Putin and Xi… but fighting to destroy democracy from within !”

Attorney Ron Filipkowski pointed out the stark difference between Trump and his biggest 2024 rival, Ron DeSantis, writing, “Desantis criticizes Trump’s cozy relationship with Putin: ‘Trump was very positive about Putin. I think that reality has set in that this is not going to work out that way, and you’re better off dealing with Putin by being strong.’”

Another user bluntly wrote, “Trump publicly admitted to siding with Putin over the United States. HE IS A TRAITOR.”
And the theme continues, with many people pointing to Trump’s comments over the weekend about ending the war in 24 hours as a sign he would capitulate to any demands placed by Russia to end the conflict just to score a win.

It’s a concerning time for voters as they have to weigh Donald Trump’s history of siding with Putin versus their experience of seeing the Ukrainian people struggle and fight to survive against Russia’s invasion forces.

And when Trump tells people he would choose Putin over US officials when make determinations, they should probably believe him.
